In the Venice lagoon, the bricole consists of three wooden stakes driven into the bottom of the navigable channels to warn boats of the presence of shallow water off the Serenissima. Inspired by this waymarking system, the artist Sylvie Bonnot revisited the bricole to imagine how they might look in the Hortillonnages in Amiens, also known as the Venice of vegetables. The artist relied on the original function of the Bricole Bibendum, the warning sign, to create structures that oscillate between sculpture and signage. The three monumental installations made from inner tubes mark out the course of the Festival from the Port à Salades up to the l’île des Aulnes. Lightweight in appearance, these inflated structures consist of a stack of sausage like inner tubes, closely fastened to each other with large black or red elastic belts. Anchored to the bottom of the stream, their grey silhouettes already blackened by the sun, they rise vertically up to three metres high, oscillating with the wind and the boats passing by.
